Never trust a future President! Twelve-year-old Max Mooney is a sculpture's apprentice in the 1860s. His boss is working on a statue of Abraham Lincoln. When Max breaks one of the plaster hands, he hides his mistake and decides to replace it before anyone finds out. All he has to do is get to Mr. Lincoln and re-cast his hand. Unfortunately, Max locates Mr. Lincoln on the day he's elected to run for President. Half the city is at his house celebrating. The only way Max can privately see Lincoln is with the help of his young sons, Willie & Tad, but they may be harder to trust than a future President!
